Color EYE

A quick polar coordinates adjustment on my first smoke wheel produced this effect.

    Thanks Psycho_Babble and Jane, you guys mapped the way with great instructions!
    I just followed directions and added a slight spin. Happy to be part of the group :)

    FlapJack How did you get the spirals on the outer section to go two different directions? Was that in the smoke, or did you put two layers together?

    I see a tesla coil look here. Very cool!

    Psycho_Babble Just saw this, I need to pay attention!

    Any way, all I did is create a standard smoke wheel and then,
    1.) duplicate the final image in Photoshop
    2.) Filter>Distort>Polar coordinates> and then click on polar to rectangular
    3.) Image>Rotation and rotate 180 degrees
    4.) Filter>Distort>Polar coordinates> and then click on rectangular to polar

    I am guessing the original smoke pattern had something to do with the spirals going in two different directions.

    By the way, your photo is eligible for advancement (see discussion thread) but you must first give out the required number of awards to others in the group.
